Clean rooms, friendly staff, and great price compared to other motels in the area. Rooms have been updated recently and the exterior is undergoing renovations now. Breakfast was typical motel food. Two hundred characters seems like a really long review.

We decided to stop at this hotel on our way to Branson. We wanted to stay in a family suite and were pleasantly surprised to find a king bed and a separate room with bunk beds for the kids. This hotel has been remodeled with all sorts of nostalgic memorabilia which also provided a great photo opportunity. The outdoor pool... More

I loved the nostalgia and I actually met 2 brits from Great Britain who were doing the route 66 thing from Chicago to Las Angeles. It was awesome,e I loved the swimming pool area I was able to...

We stayed here on our route 66 trip. This place is a comfortable place to stay. Rooms are clean and the front desk staff are very friendly. Cute lobby. Affordable. We got a cab to go downtown for drinks and dinner it was a fun time. Can't go wrong staying here. We recommend it.

Checked into the cute little roadside motel with the turquoise car and gas pumps outside the office. Pleasantly surprised by quiet modern room. The pool and hot tub were busy with children and families. Good Breakfast in the morning, just a little crowded getting your plate filled. Recommend to anyone heading to Springfield.

We stayed here during our Route 66 Tour. Therefore the location of this hotel was excellent for us. The room was a good size and the bathroom was very nice. The hotel was very clean in all areas. For the price of the room the hotel was definitely above average. It was good to see the old Route 66 Memorabilia... More

This place has a real connection to its past as they have all sorts of photos both in the rooms and in the lobby showing what the place used to look like. However, they have also modernized and kept up with the times and the result is an absolutely delightful place to stay. Making it even nicer, the prices are... More

My daughter and I stayed here on our college tour and were happy with the accommodations, they were super small rooms, but they met our need for a one night stay.

Very classic and nostalgic. Staff was friendly and breakfast was good. They went out of thier way to help a guest that was having car trouble. Rooms were well taken care of and very clean. Parking was tight but there was room for every one.
